Because the mean values of the recordings 24 t o 72 hours after application are below the threshold of significance (2 score for erythema or edema) FAT 40066/C can be classified as non-irritant according to council Directive 67/548/EEC, adapted to technical progress by Commission Directive 93/21/EEC.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
FAT 40066/C is to be considered as a non-irritant to the skin of rabbits.
Executive summary:

A study was performed to determine the primary-irritation index, which serves as a measure of the acute irritation, provoked by the compound, FAT 40066/C, on the skin of the New Zealand White rabbits. The study was carried out according to OECD guideline 404. An area of at least 36 cm2 was shaved on both flanks of the animals approximately 24 hours before treatment. A gauze patch (approx. 12-16 cm2) bearing 0.5 g of the test article was applied to the right flank of each animal. The skin area exposed directly to the test article was approx. 6 cm2. A control gauze patch was applied to the contralateral flank. Before application both patches were moistened with distilled water. The patches were loosely covered with an aluminum foil (approx. 36 cm2) and held in place for 4 hours by an adhesive tape.

One animal from treatment group showed erythema till 48 h and one another animal till 24h observation perion. There were no edema observed.

Because the mean values of the recordings 24 t o 72 hours after application are below the threshold of significance FAT 40066/C can be clasified as non-irritant to the skin of rabbits.
